    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Line management are friendly and personable. - A decent graduate starting salary. - A very safe and clear development program.

    Cons

    - The benefits are lacking, NO BONUS and no yearly pay rise was received when promised by the company. - You aren't rewarded on personal merit, even doing extra/going above your job title won't be acknowledged. They have a maximum allocation for those who exceed expectations, and once that target is met, everyone else just falls into the next catergory down. - They are inflexible with regards to working from home, office hours, and generally being understanding of extenuating circumstances. - The career progression is a set path regardless of personal contribution, so even if you are more qualified than others in the team, it's based on how many years you have been there rather than how hard you work. Therefore there is no real motivation to do anymore than what is required, as you'll still have to wait it out to progress in 2+ years anyways.
